Palmeri Teaching & Research Activity @ Duke BME

This website contains syllabi and content for the courses that I teach in medical device design, including summaries of past and current student projects. I will also highlight recent research in acoustic radiation force imaging, tissue characterization with shear waves, and deep learning in medical imaging, and occasionally I’ll upload some blog posts.


I actively teach Medical Device Design I & II (BME473L & BME474L) as part of the BME Design Fellows program and senior capstone design. You can find a summary of some student design projects in the Design Portfoilo.

I have also taught several other courses in the department, including Introduction to Medical Instrumentation (BME354L), and I have developed courses, including Medical Software Design (BME547) and Biomedical Circuit Analysis (BME790L).
